Does OptiPlex 780 SFF/USFF DisplayPort support Audio?

DisplayPost can support audio (like HDMI) but some Dell products with DisplayPort do not.

Does the OptiPlex 780 SFF or USFF DisplayPort carry audio?

Thanks for your time.

"Display Port can support audio." But its 2 pin Digital not analog.

Optional 8-channel audio with sampling rates up to 24 bit 192 kHz, encapsulation of audio compression formats. There are no HDCP options however meaning if the stream is encrypted (Blueray) etc it will not play.

I'm not dell engineering and I don't have a 780 so I predict that the OPTION is not there at all.

I recommend Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Amigo II USB Sound Card

Its plug and play no drivers to find.

I appreciate your attempt to help, but it does not answer my original question at all.

How do you know that it does not carry sound? What evidence to you have to support your answer?

By your own admission, you don't have an OptiPlex 780 SFF or USFF.

@Striker77 Did you ever get an answer the this?

Someone elsewhere suggested one of these cables

Don't really want to waste $20 if it isn't going to work.
